Client Support Worker (Former Employee) – Chatham-Kent, ON – 17 May 2017
I was able to build on my personal support skills while furthering my education. They were able to work around my busy school schedule and still allow me to get a good experience of the foundations used for nursing.
Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Stratford, ON – 24 April 2017
My day will start around 6 am, I called in to check my messages and if there is any changes. I go from house to house helping seniors, handicapped people. I enjoy working for this company, but they just cannot provided me with enough hours to work. The hardest part of my job is not seeing or being able to to communicate with your supervisor right away.
Support Staff (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 17 April 2017
Lacks proper management. Staffed over worked, under paid and taken advantage of. Pushed to the limited. Under appreciated and expects employees to take on more responsibilities with little or no raises. Could be a better company if appropriate management was put into place.
Fun company to work for with opportunity to grow and meet new people

Personal Support Worker (Current Employee) – Belleville, ON – 4 April 2017
Ideal for working around a busy home life and still wanting to be in the working world. Great to be out in the community allowing the elderly to stay in their own home for as long as they can. Not always guaranteed clients. Based on availability. Holidays. Clients not being home etc. Which creates an up and down paycheck from week to week.
PSW (Former Employee) – Sarnia, ON – 21 March 2017
working with the clients is the best part and being successful in providing dignified care is absolutely amazing!! Management is uncaring and uninvolved. They are bullies and simply put just don't care.They do not listen .Schedulers some are wonderful and most are bullies also due to following the instruction of management. Clients get shafted and lied to just to get shuffled around. You get lied to and used and mistreated by the entire company. Emotional and mental exhaust is common and the politics of the work place is too much wrong.You pay for union and they are completely biased. Probably the worst place to work for .
Scheduler (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 6 March 2017
I've never had a worst experience working for this horrible company they put down their employees and don't give the proper training. Also they have the biggest turn over rate that i know in the medical field.Anyone who applies to this job don't waste your time your better off looking for something that's better.
Team Assistant (Former Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 8 February 2017
Horrible issues with employee bullying by management, high expectations of hours of work with absolutely no appreciation, gossip and lying from management in front of fellow employees, withholding wages, labour laws broken.....and so much more. Save yourself a lot of grief and don't bother applying!!
Unorganized, bullying management and incompetent supervisors
PSW (Former Employee) – GTA, ON – 8 February 2017
This company spits on its psw staff and its management is too busy fighting the union to make it a fun, safe and caring environment for the workers, the supervisors never answer you or even respond back, and when they do they only are more disorganized and make even more sh** descisions and don't back there staff up! The government should also be doing more to help CCA C help CP build a more permanent client base and that's another story on its own! Choose if you may, but tread carefully with this company and it's Constant bull!
Some what work, and clients
Lazy supervisors, disorganized management, not good benefits
CSW (Former Employee) – Pembroke, ON – 27 January 2017
Scheduling is atrocious, they have no comprehension of distance or travel time and book you for clients when you're supposed to be seeing other clients. They do not book enough travel time from one client to the next leaving workers rushed and flustered. Supervisors are overworked and don't have time nor patience to deal with issues. Clients often refuse care because they are scheduled at ridiculous times and no effort is made to accommodate their preferences. Salary is low compared to other companies.
Lots of hours of you don't mind working split shifts
Nurse (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 19 January 2017
CarePartners especially the HNHB branch is getting much more better since after the labour dispute in 2015. Management is now very supportive and tries its best to coordinate employees' needs such as dayoffs, oncalls, and other technical/skill-related questions. Countless learning opportunities (in-services, online courses, totally paid training, etc) are waiting for nurses/psws to take. A LOT OF HOURS.
learning everyday; supportive management
Extremely long hours and driving in bad road conditions
Community Support Worker (Current Employee) – Niagara, ON – 12 January 2017
I love being able to keep our patients at home. It feels good to see them smile when I come in and make sure they are safe and well cared for. Km, travel time and benefits. Management is very supportive.
Community Support Worker (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 29 December 2016
I worked with this company for over 3 years and I enjoyed it for the most part helping people to perform their activities of daily living. I have learned to manage time and punctuality at work. It is nice working with other PSW because they are very approachable and helpful.
I find it hard to work until midnight, driving on a bad weather and working on holidays and every other weekends, when I wanted to spend some time at home with family.
CSW/PTA (Current Employee) – Woodstock – 7 December 2016
In order to become successful in any business, particularly when it relates to healthcare, an employer need's to treasure their employees. When that does not materialize, the company most likely will experience high volume of employee change over. This is the case with Care Partners and their poor management team, who for whatever reason are aware their company continue to let down and lose their employees, but yet fail to make an effort to improve the situation. Moving forward this does not look inspiring for a company who primarily depend on government contracts to stay in business. What happens when Care Partners' current contract with CCAC expires and they will be up for review? Missed visits will be on top of the agenda as a good reason for CCAC to consider not signing another deal with Care Partners. Perhaps just then, Care Partners will second guess themselves and recognize if they rightfully looked after their employees then they probably wouldn't need to be nervous about the time when the contract is up for renewal.
Recruitment Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 7 December 2016
This is quite possibly the worst organization anyone could ever work for. This company does not care about its patients or employees. The workload was never reasonable, especially for such a poor salary. My offer letter stated that my salary was based on a 30 hour work week, however, I had put in 50-60 hours a week just to keep up, and was never compensated for my time. I did everything from hiring everyone at the branch level, teaching orientation, and managing WSIB claims. For an agency with a ridiculously high turnover (because it really does not take the average human being very long to realize that this company is a disgrace to the field of healthcare) and no concern for the health and safety of its employees (ie: sending untrained workers to special functions, returning injured workers to regular duties without proper medical clearance, constantly overworking employees, etc), there was no possible way my job would get done between 8:30am and 4:30pm, Monday to Friday. CarePartners is a joke, and it's unfortunate that this is a healthcare company with people's lives in its hands. I now work for an employer that actually cares about its employees and the community it serves. I do one-third of the work I did at CarePartners, and yet make three times the salary. Honestly, please save yourself the stress and abuse and stay away from CarePartners.
